It is so difficult to find palm oil free toothpaste and toothbrushes are notoriously bad for the environment. That’s why I was delighted to hear that Jack and Jill have branched out to make The Natural Family Company – eco friendly tooth care for the whole family. Introducing NFco The Natural Family Company – NFco for short – was developed in response to numerous public requests for a…

Gin making and a night at the DoubleTree by Hilton Cheltenham

Yesterday, my sister and I headed to Cheltenham to review the DoubleTree by Hilton. Whilst we were in the area, we decided to check out a rather unusual activity. My husband bought me a gin-making experience for my birthday and it happened to be in Cheltenham. So we left the car at the hotel and headed off to Brennan and Brown to learn how to make gin. Gin Making The gin making lab experience at Brennan and Brown is so much in-depth than gin tasting. On arrival, we were shown the gin lab and given a rundown of the botanicals. We were…

A few months ago, I reviewed a Cheerz Memory Box. I fell totally in love with both the product and the idea of printing my photos. So when we visited beautiful Lindisfarne a few weeks ago, I knew just how to preserve the memories of a great holiday. Printing a photo canvas Cheerz sell a range of photo products.

So Cheerz is available as an app on both Android and iOS. I have to admit,…
